    I need help with my gcse homework, goalkeepers need power,agility, coordination, reaction time, muscular strength speed and balance, but why?

    for example I know goalkeepers need power for jumping but I'm not sure on the other ones?

    Agility for being able to dive for the ball
    Co-Ordination to be able to analyse the trajectory of the ball and intercept it
    Reaction time to be able to save a shot being fired at a close range
    Muscular Strength to be able to block and stop a powerful shot
    Speed to be able to physically get to the ball and stop it from going in
    Balance to make sure that if you do catch the ball, you dont just fall back in the net or fumble the fall

    Shisui has given you some examples and you have failed to acknowledge it, you ignorant poo head.


    I've adopted their quote a little (see asterisks):
    (Original post by Shisui)
    Agility: for being able to dive for the ball
    *Literally look up the definition and think about it *
    Co-Ordination: to be able to analyse the trajectory of the ball and intercept it
    *Also for working with the ball, e.g. throwing it to team mates and away from the opposition*
    Reaction time: to be able to save a shot being fired at a close range
    *To be able to react quickly, in general. Right place, right time, etc*
    Muscular Strength: to be able to block and stop a powerful shot
    *Also for strong throws and kicks, being able to move through teammates in defending corners, etc*
    Speed: to be able to physically get to the ball and stop it from going in
    *Speed as measured as reaction time (e.g, making the save), or maybe even speed as measured by distance/time (e.g. running against an attacker or going up to participate in an attacking corner and then needing to run back down to his own goal posts*
    Balance: to make sure that if you do catch the ball, you dont just fall back in the net or fumble the fall
    *The goalkeeper needs balance that can overcome the force of a powerful shot being driven towards them. They also may be required to jump for corners, etc, which require them to land safety*
